Shower shaver here. But as I'm still experimenting with what will and won't set of my skin allergies (see my previous posts about how I've developed these after nearly 40 years of DE shaving) today I went with,
Kent synthetic brush
Omega croap, I do like this.
Hawk MK1 in chrome with a Kia mild blade.
Post shave was my usual routine of,
Prep, pre and post face cream.
And M&S aqua day cologne.
I've got 6 shaves in with the hawk and blade, been swaping with my trusty sensor twin which has done a good job of keeping those pesky skin rashes in check. Good clean shave that's left me feeling fresh and clean.
Pre-shave:- Cold Water straight from the tap Brush:- Maseto 2 Band Finest Badger Horn 30/54mm knot Soap/Cream:- Wickham 1912 ~ Shamrock Tweed (sample) Bowl/Scuttle:- Captain's Choice Razor:- Muhle Rocca R96 Blade:- Gillette Nacet #1 Post-shave:- Thayers Witch Hazel / Lucky Tiger Aftershave & Face Tonic Fragrance:- YSL L’Homme
Holy Rocca. This beast is right in between the Muhle R89 (EJ DE89) and the R41, just above or more on the Merkur 34C aggressive rate and is much safer to shave the Rocca by riding the cap with some blade feel. The Rocca is very smooth IMHO using a smooth blade as possible and I've chosen the Gillette Nacet blade, I'm overwhelmed the Rocca has some extra weight because the whole head and the handle is fully stainless steel with some kind of black rubber grippy feel attached to the handle. Beside is way too early for me to give you my full judgement on the Muhle Rocca, all I can say at the moment the Muhle Rocca is very smooth IMHO as YMMV depending on your shaving techniques and your stubble because you can nick yourself very easy. This razor is a keeper in my den, I'm so glad I got myself a Muhle Rocca.
Prep: Hot towel
Pre shave: Prep
Razor: Merkur 34C HD
Brush: 'Jade' (Rooney Heritage 2XL Jade)
Soap: Barrister Reserve 'Spice'
Post: Cold water rinse / Witch Hazel / Wholly Kaw: Fougere Bouquet ASB
It's not very often that I get it wrong, but boy, did I drop the ball today! 'Jade' was totally the wrong brush for the Barrister Reserve, and my blade of choice really didn't work too well with the 34C, a razor which usually provides a sublime shave.... Thankfully, 'Spice' is a 'Top Tier' soap, and my face doesn't look like I had an unpleasant shave.. so it's not all bad..
